"." >> we cannot afford four more years of barack obama. and we aren't going to have four more years of barack obama. >> we tried what they are selling. we tried it for a decade. it didn't work then and won't work now. gwen: countdown to election day. and on the airwaves, the big debate looms, 40 days to go as the candidates drill down on the economy. >> you think if we spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, all our problems are going to go away? >> his plan is the spluss, how did the first one go. how much of it did you get? it was cash for clunkers. did you get help from that? gwen: and duke it on foreign policy. >> i'm pretty certain there will be bumps in the road because in a lot of these places, the one organizing brell has been islam. >> he said the developments in the middle east are bumps in the road. [laughter] >> yeah, that was my reaction. bumps in the road? these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. gwen: the candidates, the polls, the issues, the voters, we are in the heartland tonight. covering the week, charles babington of th

. >> they're saying they're kind of ambivalent about obama's performance over the last four years, but among them president obama has a big lead and what it says is right now romney is only drawing voters who have a negatives vert ikt on obama's first four years. he's not winning enough of the people who have a mixed -- you have a sliver of voters who are not 100% satisfied with obama but right now clearly see him as a better bet than the next four than mitt romney and that is the challenge for him in the debate. >> we're still 40 days until the election but early voting is under way. what's the likely impact of this early voting even before the first debate? >> two things. first, it's a test of all of that money that president obama's campaign has sunk into organization. they have made unprecedented investments in trying to have this kind of reach out and touch people capacity. and early voting, particularly for democrats. as i mentioned. young people and minorities who are more irregular voters, having this extra time is important to be able to move them out. the other thing of course is i
for the fourth straight year. conventional wisdom saying that president obama should be losing, but there's a slew of national and swing state polls that show president obama building a small lead against republican rival mitt romney. joining me now, tameka simms, and lynn sweet. good afternoon to both of you ladies. >> hello. >> good afternoon. >> let's take a quick look at the polling here. president obama up by five in a fox news poll, six in a bloomberg poll, three in a politico poll, seven points in a "national journal" poll. why do you think that the president is edging out mitt romney in these polls, when the economic recovery has been so slow? >> well, it's a fairly complicated answer, and a lot of it has to do with voter attitudes towards the economy, less so than voter attitudes toward president obama or mitt romney. in many ways, voters have gotten used to the idea of a poor economy, even a lackluster one. and they've kind of gotten used to it. a quarter of the people who said the country was headed in the wrong track are still supporting the president. so they've basically got
the entire four years of the economy on president obama. they would know that average people understand, he came in with a huge burden, a collapsing economy, and they would have -- he would have said, look, the first two years, that was the problem of the president's predecessor. you can't blame him for that. but the last two years, that's obama's. there were ways for him to deal with it. but frankly, it was a very, very difficult legacy for, i think any republican, romney or anyone, to have to deal. >> the romney campaign said it wants to make the election about the economy, and initially it really tried to do that. but polls show that now americans, as you mentioned, tend to assign more blame to bush than to obama when it comes to that issue. 68% say bush should get a great deal or moderate amount of blame. 52% say the same thing about obama. did the romney campaign just, did they fail to take this into account, or did they just fail to address it properly? >> i think it's both, actually, right? i think that in the -- among a lot of republicans who supported george bush fervently in the f
's done before, the status quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of president obama. we're not going to have four more years of obama. >>> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney meet in the first presidential debate. the news hours jim lehr moderates. watch and engage with c-span including the live debate preview at 7 p.m. eastern, debate at 9, and post debate, calls, reactions, e-mails, and tweets. follow our coverage on c-span, c-span radio, and online at c-span.org. now on booktv, peter takes about why our economy produces great wealth and great poverty at the same time. he offers suggestions on how to improve the conditions on tens of millions of americans living below the poverty line. this is about 50 minutes. >> well, thank you so much, debra. i am totally delighted to be here and thanks to busboys and poets for allowing me to be here, to talk with you, and, of course, thanks to all of you for coming. i see a lot of -- a lot of friends, some of my students are here. they already got their grades so no -- [laughter] nobody was threatened. this is -- we could sp
of barack obama's economic policies linking him to the weak economy that he has presided over four years. i say that because my sense, paul, there are a substantial number of voters. people lo say i think i'm going to vote for president obama. i don't feel that strongly about it, but i don't think mr. romney has made the case with me. i wish i could hear him out before i make up my mind. this is the opportunity to do that. >> paul: that obama narrative is disaster. don't let mitt romney who is just like george bush brings you back to the disaster and some people are buying that narrative. reluctantly because i think romney has not connected obama's policies to the pain they feel? >> forward looking, the president he would be and let him present to the people what the disaster would be in the second term for obama. what would be the case. he doesn't have to worry nice guy and all this. this is the only one and only chance. there is life after the presidency. he ought not to look back and say i didn't risk being an independent. >> paul: i didn't leave anything on the table. what are you heari
% in three years. and going higher under obama care. awful situation. gas prices up 106% since mr. obama took office. a complete disationer. national debt up $5.4 trillion under the president and going higher. a catastrophe and while salaries for workers are flat or down, corporate profits are up, signaling more economic imbalance in america. now, it used to be that economic steps like those would doom, doom an incumbent president. that's not happening this year. barack obama is not even conceding that his policies haven't worked. he is essentially saying they will work if you give me four more years. millions of americans seem to be on board with that as the president's poll numbers are higher than most expected. the rasmussen daily tracking poll today has mr. obama up by 1%, 47%, to 46% over mitt romney. in the 11 swing states that will decide the election, rasmussen has the race tied 46% 46%. 3% remain undecided in the swing states. that's much closer than most of the other polling which talking points exposed earlier this week as being heavily weighted to the democratic side. we here are
of foreign policy, whether or not president obama's policy towards iran, four years of trying to coax them into a discussion quid pro quo, if you stop pursuing a nuclear weapon hasn't worked. has that taken us closer to war? >> because it persuaded iranians they will cross the nuclear threshold while jerusalem and washington are squabbling with one another. a floats fer that some people, leon strot sky you may not be interested in war but war is interested in you. we may not be interested in going to war with iranians but a iranians may be interested in going to war with us. >> paul: if f mitt romney the last thing he want to do if he gets elected he wants to get into a war. he has to be focused on domestic agenda? >> that is what he is running on. iran is obviously down the road and abdication of anything in syria. that war is out of control. it's spilling into lebanon and iraq which we have completely abandoned. if mitt romney does get through this, he will be facing a dangerous world. >> paul: what should romney say to that he is a warmonger? >> i would regard it as infantile remark, su
, in 2008 president obama won virginia specifically the first time a democrat had won that state in 44 years. he also won all of the other states we mentioned in our introduction, colorado, florida, ohio and virginia what is president obama doing wrong in time around? >> he's not doing anything wrong. you are right, win virginia last time. i believe he will win it again this time. he does have a lead in that state in most polls. the one area where he's behind is the veteran vote. he's running even with white males against romney, if you take out the veterans vote. >> heather: that veteran vote is significant. trey, veterans are a high turn-out demographic concentrated in battleground states nearly one million each in north carolina, ohio and virginia, 1.6 million in florida. it is a significant demographic. how will events in the mideast, including that deadly attack at the consulate in libya and the administration's reaction following attacks, how will that affect the veteran vote? >> that is the issue. it absolutely will. you didn't have to be in charlotte to see the democrat party is bein
much. he was 86-years-old. >> heather: courting the military vote, president obama and governor romney campaigning in the critical battleground state of virginia this week capturing support of service members is key to winning that state. has that support slipped for president obama? take a look at this, a poll in four important battleground states, specifically colorado, florida, ohio and virginia, among veterans, president obama is trailing governor romney by double digits by as much as 20%, party points in colorado and florida. how will this play out on election day? president of new heights communications and the former spokesperson to vermont governor dean and the senior vice president of box global, thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me >> heather: this is the first time in 80 years, that neither ticket had a veteran in the running. traditionally republicans had the upper hand when it comes to the military vote. will that be the case this year too or can president obama turn these polls around? trey i'll start with you. >> you don't have to have military service to ru
and version is water in virginia than anyplace i have seen this year. obama is polling 49%, college was carried down to 32% among non-college whites. it underscores the changing class nature. non-college whites are no change. from 44 to 48%. there is this enormous gap. mcdonald drove to the numbers to 29%. right now obama has the edge because he has the edge nationally. in the senate race, look, we're seeing routinely, as the average 85% of the people who vote for obama are voting for the democratic senate candidate. we are moving into a parliamentary system by voters as well as by legislators. i think it is very likely that whichever candidate wins the presidential race in virginia, there party will win the senate race. >> when you're looking at the affluent voters in northern virginia, many of them are connected to the boom in public spending. that is something that shapes your perception. >> yes, but the numbers are close to national, which is different from the college whites. it is a little better. the non-college whites are a little worse. it goes back to the point where in st
with their base in that way. >> eliot: president obama got significant criticism on the first couple of years of his first term on issues such as immigration and lesbian/gay issues as well and then suddenly there when he needed the base to come back he came out in support of same-sex marriage. and that solidified him as yes, once again he is our candidate. >> that's right. >> eliot: there you see him as the nimble politician, and i think that has carried him forward. >> as with bill clinton he is enemies right at the moment of election where you have this hard core opposition as clinton did with newt gingrich. and then people say maybe he'll unleash in the second term. i think people are concerned with obama as well, who is the real obama. >> eliot: yeah. but we do know that mitt romney is being sunk but his apparently feelty to the far right. and david stockman said this guy is a joker. >> that's right. they look at romney and say this is too far. the right has gone to an extreme that we never would have envisioned or endorsed and the country cannot sustain. this deep of
that will say in the first two years of the obama administration, there was democratic control of both houses of congress, and the president had a hard time getting his legislative agenda passed. caller: it's because the filibuster in the senate, i mean, when you need 60 votes and the democrats only had 59, so he had a hard time getting even healthcare through. host: all right, paul, we're going to move to andy on our line from independents, calling from florida. caller: sorry, i'm calling from south carolina. host: ok, andy is calling from south carolina where. in south carolina, andy? caller: columbia. host: ok. are you in favor of divided government or one party? caller: well, i'm not so sure i'm in favor of either one, unless -- except if divided government is going to give us what it's given us now and nothing gets done, nothing gets passed. we got a credit rating downgraded because one party says my way or the highway. that's not good governance. it's not -- there's no such thing as my way or the highway. we all have to compromise, you know, in a marriage, the husband doesn't get everyt
quo has not worked. we cannot afford four more years of barack obama and we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. we talked to cnbc host maria bartiromo about wall street's view of the economy. this is 50 minutes. >> host: joining us from our new york studio is a familiar face to anyone who is turned on cnbc, maria bartiromo who is the anchor of closing bell on that channel. maria bartiromo i want to start by asking about to headline this morning in "the wall street journal." the side-by-side numbers trouble ahead. this is about the drop in durable goods that was reported yesterday and the headline next to it is, obama trumpets revised job data, saying we are adding jobs. how would you describe our economy today? >> guest: i think right now the economy has worsened. you have got a jobs problem pretty severe and persistent. at 8.1% of the country without a job and of course we know that does not include those who have simply stopped looking so then employment rate is or like 11 or 12% of the country. you mentioned the durable goods numbers yesterday. that indicated thin
voters and the presidential debates narrow the gap? >> i've seen four years of obama, we need a new leader economically and socially. and romney could dance across the stage the last day on his head and i'd vote for him without hesitation. and jamie colby and kelly with more. have a great day, everybody. >> kelly: we begin with a fox news alert. new pressure on america's ambassador to the united nations to resign. susan rice facing mounting criticism for statements she made following the deadly attack on the consulate in benghazi, peter king becoming the highest ranking lawmaker to call for her to step down. and congressman king making his case moments ago here on fox news channel. >> if ambassador rice was deliberately misleading t
voters and the presidential debates narrow the gap? >> i've seen four years of obama, we need
of barack obama and says look, we can't take four more years of this and here's where we're going. if he comes in there tough and competent and destroys that caricature, i think he can still wake up this country, and i think there's still a chance he can turn it around. he's got to win it, though, john. >> obama's campaign staff is telling everybody it sees how good romney is at debating. >> well, each of the campaigns sent out a memo basically saying how good the other guy is and stressing all of their guy's flaws. ironically, they are right. both of talented debaters. obama has some advantages. he's debated in the general election stage before. romney has the advantage of having simply debated more over the last year. so i think it's kind of an even stage there, but the situation is not comparable to reagan versus carter. the economic metrics when carter was running for re- election were extremely negative, much more negative than they are today, and just this last week, polls show that the pub has more confidence in the president's economic views and vision and program than romney. so
about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thing is that median household income is down by more than $3,000. that is the real issue. lori: median incomes, talking about flat line, that is one of the crises of the jobs problem in this country that has been a reported. and let you mention it. tell me what you think the response should be. so far it has been just to tap the bailout package,
downward. david, we should be enjoying 4% growth, not minus 2% growth that we've had during the obama administration. rick, romney may have been running for president forever, but obama has been president for almost -- you know, for 3 1/2 years. >> and it seems forever. >> only to some of us. >> we're not going get the median incomes up until income growth up. simplification has been to do be done. obama takes no interest in this. rick, when was the last time you even heard president obama talk about growth? >> let me actually switch -- let me switch to mark now. mark, what do you think of the obama tax plan? >> well, look, i don't know if obama has really a tax plan, but i don't think the problem is taxes here. i think the problem is people don't have an income. the reason they don't have an income, they don't have jobs. we have a demand problem in the economy, not a tax problem. cutting taxes, if you have no income, does not make any difference. we need to stimulate demand. how can we stimulate demand? we can do it in a variety of ways, but cutting taxes is not going to get us where
't know, kelly, i disagree with you. we haven't seen from president obama what his next four years would be, we have not seen anything from governor romney on what his business-- his presidency would look like, all he's done is attack the-- >> during the debate. >> what he will do during the debate i think is remind the american people of his record on counterterrorism, and that is not something that governor romney is going to be able to poke any holes in, and i think he will also remind the american people of when it comes to the economy, that it's the turn around is going to take time. >> oh. >> and you've seen president clinton talk about why it took eight years to get us surpluses and i think it will be finally clear, because, unfortunately. >> jehmu. >> the media has focused only on-- >> let me get the final word to angela. >> president obama has a record and the bottom line, we have anemic economy. people don't have jobs and they're still incleased home foreclosures and mitt romney has talked about what he's going to do to create a more prosperous america. >> most americans don't
ask you for three years when the mainstream media is bludgeoning obama on the economy. do you think he got a free ride? >> eric: yes! >> greg: absolutely! where was the bludgeoning? >> bob: on the economy. every day is bad news. >> greg: wait, you echoed many people who said the economy is roaring back. >> bob: it is. >> greg: millions of the invisible jobs. >> kimberly: where is the roar? >> greg: you can't have it both ways and say he has been bludgeoned at the same time the media gives him more water than niagara falls water institute. >> eric: where is the integrity. if they won't report a story that is this importance that may implicate the white house, don't hit two of three news channel, abc did, cbs and nbc isn't. no integrity. >> greg: they have to advance an agenda. >> bob: do you think they have an agenda like that? >> greg: yes! they all come from same place. >> bob: they have editorial meeting this morning and said what can we do for bam snap >> greg: they already share the assumption. >> kimberly: think, bob, it's ingrained. it's not like anyone says it out loud. it's the
, the barack obama now has not got that sort of messianic feel he had four years ago. he's got to really raise his game in these debates. >> the great thing about this debate is that it gives him the chance to directly confront mitt romney on what his plans are. mitt romney has been talking generally about how he's going to save the country from the economic mess that the president has led us into. well, the reality is the stock market is booming, we've seen the jobs numbers turn around, the numbers today saying that there's net job creation takes away a big talking point and what is mitt romney going to do specifically, how is his tax plan going to be structured? he hasn't answered those. what deductions is he going to take away because failure to answer allows for there to be an argument that he's going to raise taxes on the middle class to pay for tax cuts for the wealthy. so i think the president has a real opportunity here. i do think in the convention, bill clinton was a wonderful third party validater. the president has a chance to go on the attack as well in a presidential way, but i t
. there is a point there, barack obama hasn't done a debate now for quite a long time. mitt romney spent most of the year debating and he got better and better. i thought actually he was a very good debater. one of the reasons he won the nomination was his ability to swat away all comers. so i would think this could be a bit of a surprise coming next week, where mitt romney maybe ought to refocus his whole campaign, get momentum and really get after barack obama at a time when barack obama least wants him to. >> i totally agree with you, piers. this is the moment for mitt romney to seize the momentum back. he's going to put everything he can into winning this debate and you know, the media doesn't like a lopsided race so i actually have predicted that the media are going to declare that mitt romney is the winner of the first debate regardless of actually what happens, because the pendulum cannot sustain itself if it's too lopsided in terms of the media. it's also true as stephanie said, five out of the six challengers to incumbents in presidential races have been declared the winner of the fi
year deal with the league, ending the three-month ordeal. both sides quickly reaching agreement after replacement refs drew complaints from fans and even president obama. the new contract passing 112-5 today. >> rick: bipartisan outrage when it came to the refs. no matter what your politics. >> next, anger in the streets of europe today. why thousands say they are fed up and what they want done about it, coming up. >> arthel: could there be an enthusiasm gap from young people this election? we'll tell you whatcom pains are doing about it, that is coming up as well. >> young people like so many of you here, you all have always given barack's campaigns with your passion and your energy, gosh you guys are good. [ chiefing ] >> this president's policies have not worked for the young peep of america. one more thing that is not only will they have a hard time finding a job, giving the economy this president has produced. not only will they have a nil father that is becoming devastated in the words of the secretary of defense, devastated by these defense cuts. they will also have hundreds of
people about our respective views. >> four more years. >> reporter: mr. obama spent a couple of hours practicing yesterday, as well. and has three days set aside for more practice. it's nicknamed debate camp. and near the end of camp, like now, it's a full-on mock debate. following the time rules, podiums the exact distance apart, and fill-ins for the opposition. preparing joe biden. >> it's only tense when they give you the completely wrong answer. the goal is to make them feel that they're as real as possible. >> reporter: she believes romney has the harder chore. >> the idea that i'm anti-immigrant is repulsive. >> reporter: being aggressive against the president, drawing distinctions between the president, trying not to be nasty. >> i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. >> thank you. >> reporter: and the president who can become impatient, is probably being pushed in practice, as well. >> part of having a tough opponent in your mock is that you get that anger out in the mock. so that the president is relatively calm and collected. >> reporter: there are re
years of barack obama. we're not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> the yemeni president was in washington d.c. today to speak at the wilson's manner. mr. hadi took over the presidency in february after an uprising forced a previous president to step down after 33 years in power. security remains a major turning ament with president hadi offering to hold talks with al qaeda and other militant groups to take down their weapons. jane harman gives introductory remarks. >> do we have some more room for the president's party? let's see -- okay. good afternoon to welcome to the wilson center. i am jane harman, president and eeo. the wilson center, a living memorial to her 28th president is a vibrant arena for discussion. our charter for business or not busy, but not from creating a safe political space to engage a diversity of views and to explore today's toughest policy issues. all viewpoints are sought out and heard, free from spam. on behalf of the wilson center and the atlantic council, an honor to to welcome his excellency, abdrabuh mansour hadi, the president of the repub
